We're preparing for baby now, and last week we bunked Aubrey and Luke together in her room to leave Luke's old room for the baby.  The transition has gone better than I was worried about except for one thing. When one wakes up crying in the … [Read more...]

New Beauty Buys from CVS

I need a 12 step program for CVS.  I can't help picking up some new items whenever I receive some of their rewards cash.  I had a lot the other day - 3 PLUS a 20% off coupon and I saw some fun items to try.  And you get to hear all about them!    Garnier BB Cream (Fair to Light) I bought the Garnier BB cream before, but wasn't a fan of how greasy it felt after I applied it.  At the time, there were not many options. But now? TONS! I couldn't believe all the brands that are trying their hand at BB cream.  I'm a sucker for great packaging so I went with this Olay BB cream.  So far, … [Read more...]

ELF vs Urban Decay – Shadow Primer {beauty}

I found the pin!!!!!   Months ago I found this pin on Pinterest (do you follow me?) about all of these different drug store dupes for name brand makeup.  I didn't pin it but did spend a good 2+ hours on the blogger's site reading through all her trials she did.  And of course, now I can't find the pin or the blog.  (note to self: REPIN!)  One of the ones I was interested in was the Urban Decay shadow primer.  When I received the Urban Decay Naked Palette, it came with a sample size of their shadow primer.  I loved it. I had never used a primer on my lids before, but it made sense. I … [Read more...]

Things I Dig {more}

Every now and then I find a few new products that I like, and after trying them out for a bit, I come here and blog about it. Well, it's time for that again!  And it's one of my favorite topics to discuss - beauty! In this post, I talked about the Korres eyeliners I purchased from Sephora. I have used the brown & black eyeline religiously and now they're going towards their last legs.  I have another black one {smudgeable} but brown  I do not. So last weekend I headed back to Sephora to replace it.  When I got home, I realized I mistakenly {or, by accident on purpose?} bought a brown … [Read more...]

Makeup Junkie

For as long as I can remember, since I was able to wear makeup, I've been a junkie. In high school, it was all about the True Colors powder-esque shadows {raise your hand if you wore it!}. Then in college I moved to MAC which I've worn pretty much the entire time. I have had some smashbox shadows that I received in my bridesmaid gift, and I'm not opposed to trying any brand, once. For Christmas {and my birthday} whenever anyone asked what I wanted, I said I wanted something for me, something to pamper myself with, or just enjoy. I stepped into Sephora to purchase a gift for my sister and … [Read more...]
